PostSubject: More figure paintings from same session   Wed Mar 27, 2013 10:49 am

Why not post some of the other figure sketches I completed on the same day. These are not as successful as the previously posted sketches, but you might get some value from seeing what else I tried. I am always reluctant to show work that I am not happy with, but I do it this time to help us all discuss them if you are interested.

In some cases, the proportions need adjustment, the facial features need development, all possible, but not in the time that ws available.

These paintings were done in either 5, 10 or 15 minutes for main figure, with Artisan WSO full strength on canvas paper or inexpensive stretched canvas, pretinted using same 3 colours.

I think all of these are worthy of posting - you are just hyper-critical but when you stop to realize how little time you had, even you must admit that they're really good considering!

Even these that you feel are not as successful, are better than I could ever accomplish in such a short time. I did one painting in an acrylics class years ago from a live model for two hours and I accomplished a women with a very big, out of proportion head.

Thanks Jan and Judy.

It's fun but challenging to try to paint someone who is standing or sitting in front of you. I just use it as practise in mixing and applying values. I know it will help me some time when I am doing outdoor plein air, or another figure study.

I keep pushing myself a bit, to keep things keen and interesting. But there are sketches I like better than other ones, and the ones I have posted give a clearer picture of my efforts.

Well, these are gestural paintings... and are just paintings that you are stepping store to what you will become... I say that to myself everytime I make a boo boo...Smile

I think it is good to be critical that is the only way to grow... Having said that.. these are fantastic for the time you have spent on them... I need to start doing these too..

Thanks for your comments Faisal. I think it is useful to share our images with each other as we learn together here.
I have kept a couple of my very very first attempts at oils, from 2007. Not to criticize those early attempts, but to stop, smell the roses, and understand how far I have come since then.
